What constitutes as bar food these days? Bar food used to consist of chicken wings, cheesy nachos, chips and dip, and some potato skins, but that has all changed with restaurants like Dancing Crab.
Aside from the pool table and the flat screen TVs – 17 to be exact, Dancing Crab is not your typical sports bar.
What sets it apart is the food. On one side of the menu, there are seafood items, similar to what you can find at a seafood boil type of eatery. On the other side, the menu serves bar food of the Korean variety.
The seafood seasoning and flavoring is admittedly different from other cajun restaurants. Dancing Crab uses Korean spices to add a flare to the flavors that go with ‘your catch’, which is your choice of crawfish, crab, shrimp, lobster, etc.
You can even get a sample selection of seafood in the combination deals like the Combination A which includes shrimp, crawfish, blue crab, dungeness crab, clams, potatoes, corn, and sausage. Customers can then choose different seasonings and levels of heat.
If you’re interested in Korean bar food, Dancing Crab has a selection of excellent dishes. The deep fried seaweed noodle wrap is served along side ricecakes in a spicy sauce and egg white sausage. The fried chicken and chicken wings are always amazing and go great with beer.
The Asian fusion eatery offers 12 beers on tap and specialty cocktails like soju yogurt and soju pomegranate. During Broncos games, they discount selected drafts at $.99 each. TVs are mounted throughout the restaurant, and they all have their own box and controls so patrons can catch whichever sports event they prefer.
The décor has a futuristic, nautical theme and the restaurant can fit up to 200 patrons.
Dancing Crab is a great place to catch the game or an excellent spot to meet friends for some drinks and appetizing food.
